The-One-Point-Eight

Damien was the first one to properly meet Clark out of the Batkids. The others were constantly in and out of the house to meet with friends so the first few times he came over Damien was the only other one in the house with Bruce beside Alfred.

To say Damien was skeptical of him was an understatement. He would watch Clark and Bruce from the doorway, and refused to enter the room when Clark was over. It took a while before he adjusted to his temporary presence. Unlike Bruce’s other suitors, this one didn’t try to impose themselves on him in an attempt to bond, nor did he ignore him.

If he brought food over he would ask Damien directly if he wanted some. He made sure to say hi and bye when he came and went. But he was more vigilant than Damien thought. Clark was the one who pointed out that Damien had very few toys for an eight-year-old, to which Damien replied that he had no use for such thing.

Despite that statement, Clark brought over a stuffed bear the next time he came over. He presented it to Damien, who took it not to be rude and kept it by his pillow for show, and not because he liked snuggling it at night.

Bruce later surprised him with a trip to the toy store. Clark was with them. He helped him pick out a toy box and gave him the challenge to fill it with toys that he wanted. Damien, at first, was reluctant to participate in something like this and only put a few things in so he wouldn’t be difficult.

The adults were the ones who were having fun with it. Clark and Bruce were having a light saber fight in the middle of the isle. It was stupid, but Damien found himself laughing at their antics. It wasn’t until Clark started to get the upper hand that Damien stepped in with a lightsaber of his own. Clark was a good sport about it and went down easy, he even played dead. 

Then they passed the stuffed animals and Damien found a stuffed cow that he had to have, a cat that was too soft to leave behind, a set of chicks that had to be kept as a set, a turtle that was the side of his head, and a bunny that wanted to come home with him. 

They didn’t get bags to put them in on the way out of the store because they needed to breathe. He knows it’s childish, but for some reason pretending that they were living creatures made him feel less lonely.

After that, Clark started to bring more stuffed animals around. It wasn’t until the bear ripped and Cark borrowed Alfred’s sewing kit to fix it, that Damien realized that the ones Clark brought him might be home made. 

It would be a few years later before Damien was mature enough to thank Clark.

weird how people are asking me for “sources” on a post that is… my reflections on & expression of my personal experience & making reference 2 a lot of disparate things & like yeah it doesnt have sources but like its all shit thats easily google-able and if yr trying to debate me on any one of the eight or so points i put out then yr a transmisogynist lol bc none of them are like controversial (in my eyes) or difficult 2 parse of discern issues.

                                 New type of RainbowLightcaster!!!!  My new prototype RainbowLightcasters are dichroic and reflect a multicolored eight pointed star from the silver image on one side as well as a different image in color from the reverse side.  They also change six different colors as they turn,  while the crystal at the bottom refracts rainbows around the room. WOW!!!  They will be available at my Etsy shop soon.   Richard Elvis  Etsy      (∩`-´)⊃━☆゚.*・。゚

“Aye, sir,” she said. Her perfectly groomed hair was tousled. “Plasma increasing velocity. Matching our speed… Overtaking our velocity now. They will intercept in forty-three seconds.”
“Forward camera,” Commander Keyes ordered.
The view screen flashed: the image changed to show the two alien frigates turning to face the incoming Iroquois head-on. Blue lights flickered along their hulls- pulse lasers charging.
Commander Keyes pulled back the camera angle and saw the alien carrier and the destroyer were still inbound toward Sigma Octanus IV. He read their position off his data pad and quickly performed the necessary calculations.
“Course correction,” he told Lieutenant Jaggers. Come about to heading zero zero four point two five. Declination zero zero zero point one eight.“
"Aye, sir,” Jaggers said. “zero zero four point two five. Declination zero zero zero point one eight.”
The view screen turned and centered on the enormous Covenant destroyer.
“Collision course!” Lieutenant Hall announced. “Impact with Covenant destroyer in eight seconds.”
“Stand by for new course correction: declination minus zero zero zero point one zero.”
“Aye, sir.” As Jaggers typed, he wiped sweat from his eyes and double-checked his numbers. “Course online. Awaiting your order, sir.”
“Collision with Covenant destroyed in five seconds,” Hall said. She clutched the edge of her seat.
The destroyer grew in the view screen: laser turrets and launch bays, bulbous alien protrusions and flickering blue lights.
“Hold this course,” Commander Keyes said. “Sound collision alarm. Switch to undercarriage camera now.”
Klaxons blared.

Three years! It’s taken me three years to teach myself to handstand freely without the helps of a wall! Three years of practice; in classes, at home alone, at the gym, with friends. Three years of frustration and ups and downs in my personal and emotional life. I even quit at one point for about eight months. I won’t lie and say that after eight months of no Yoga I was able to just pop right up into a handstand - I did have to go back to the basics - but it just happened tonight. I wasn’t really set on doing a handstand and holding it. I remember reading a post from @yoga_girl (a couple of years ago) that sometimes we need to just stop. Stop trying. Stop focusing on it. Go do something else instead and leave whatever it is that’s frustrating you on the metaphorical back burner. I didn’t intentionally do that but that’s what happened. Those words have stuck with me for years now and I finally understand it. I wish other aspects in life were so simple - unfortunately you can’t just walk away from your obligations and responsibilities and problems for eight months. But I think taking a new approach and gaining a new perspective might help. I’m still learning #yoga #foreverayogi #myyogapractice #inversions #handstand #thankyouyogagirl #gettingmystrengthback
